Description

How do magicians cut a person in half - and then put them back together again? How can you read other people's minds? Is it magic - or it is for real? Then find out about one of the the greatest magicians - ever. And find out what to do if a witch puts a curse on you. Get the facts. Then read 'The Disappearance', a scary story about being a magician's assistant. It might cost you your life!

This fantastic book features an exciting combination of both fiction and non-fiction. The non-fiction section enables readers to engage with the subject matter, using dramatic illustrations and bite-sized texts. The beautifully illustrated fiction story appears in two formats - short, simple texts for more able readers and an illustrated 'speech bubble' version of the same story, for those who are really struggling. Part of the Trailblazers series, this book is brilliant for keeping reluctant readers engaged.
